"I spent a day on the sets at Film City shooting for an ad. While on set, I learnt that 'Zanjeer' the II was being shot on an adjoining floor and that Charan the hero and its maker Apoorva Lakhia wanted to visit me," Amitabh wrote on his blog bigb.bigadda.com.
"Charan is a very successful star in his own right in Telugu cinema, he is the son of superstar Chiranjeevi, a dear friend. I met them and wished them well," he added.
Ram Charan would be essaying the role of cop Vijay, a character made famous by Amitabh in the original film. Actress Priyanka Chopra will play the female lead in the remake.
